Right now the world of online marketing is going through a major transition. More and more companies are focusing their efforts on content marketing to reach their audience on relevant blogs whilst also acquiring backlinks to their site in the process. As businesses and agencies alike realise the convergence between SEO, social media and content marketing – bloggers have a new opportunity to monetize their web sites, increase the value of their content and provide a fresh voice on their site.
PostJoint is a new platform where advertisers and bloggers meet. Its a service for bloggers to access fresh content for their sites, make new relationships with advertisers, and earn some money in the process. Bloggers can get paid to publish posts from PostJoint’s advertisers (who are independent) at a rate of $25 to $500 per post.
Right now the system is in Beta and is free for everyone to use. PostJoint recently announced that their bloggers have already earned over $100,000 in just a short amount of time!
Let’s look at some screen grabs to better understand how the site works.
When you login the first thing you see is the blogger dashboard. From here you can see the “Offers You’ve Made” and “Opportunities” section. Opportunities are prewritten blog posts that you can offer to publish. They are targeted to your interests and your blog so that you can ensure relevance. As soon as an opportunity receives five offers it disappears so you need to be quick when you see a post that you like.
When you create your blogger account you will need to choose some content categories to determine the opportunities you receive. The more you select the better (you can choose a maximum of ten). Once you find an opportunity that you like, you click on it to view more details like a snippet of the post, outbound links and copyscape score. The opportunities are either marked as “free”, “paid” ($25-$500) and “all considered” which means you can make any offer.
Making an Offer
Below you will see a screenshot of the area where you can fill out your offer information. You also have the option to include a tweet, which is a big benefit for the advertiser. You can also state your requested fee and add a note to the advertiser. An important point to note is that advertisers can only get a maximum of five offers per post, meaning you always have a decent chance of being accepted instead of competing with hundreds of others.
Tracking Your Offers
The offers area allows you keep track of all the offers you have made, grab the full article to post on your site when your offers are accepted, check payment stats and provide feedback to advertisers.
